5 Delicious Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipes

5 Delicious Thanksgiving Cocktail RecipesI’m thankful for a lot of things this holiday season, many of which are true, heartfelt things to be thankful for. However something that I think we can all be thankful for are cocktails; especially when you have the day off from work, family is around, and you just want to relax and enjoy the day. Not to say that you can’t enjoy the day without a cocktail in hand but it’s definitely an added treat to the holiday season.

I love everything holiday themed so cocktails are no different. I’ve searched the internet (mostly Pinterest) to find 5 of the most delicious cocktail recipes for you to try out this Thanksgiving!

These recipes are loaded with cranberry, apple, pomegranate, and citrus. If that’s not really your style, I also recommend a classic mimosa, red wine, rose, or hard cider. Although they’re lacking cliche seasonal flavors, they definitely are great drinks for the holiday season (or any season, really.) Speaking of cider: if you live in New England, Downeast Cider Winter Blend is perfect! 

Okay, now onto the delicious cocktails!
